Any type of accident involving a large commercial truck can be frightening and can cause serious damage and injury. However, rollover accidents  can be particularly devastating. In a rollover accident, the trailer of a semi-truck falls over onto its side, often in the path of several lanes of traffic. This can cause numerous collisions or a chain reaction collision that can cause injury to many different motorists in many different vehicles. Additionally, the cargo of a truck can often spill out onto the road, which can cause additional accidents or even explosions if the truck is hauling gasoline or other chemicals. As you can imagine, rollover truck accidents often leave devastation in their wake.
